T4A mixes things up at Buddha and Tavern
January 10, 2013
On November 28, members of Tufts Asian American Association (T4A) met up for mixers at the Fat Buddha Bar in New York City and the Tavern in the Square in Cambridge. The simultaneous nights on the town “opened new doors” for many young alumni looking to network, says Nabil Hoq, A12, volunteer organizer of the Cambridge event. “It was a great opportunity to meet older alumni and see what types of work they’re involved in.”
His New York counterpart, William Huang, A12, agrees. “The conversation was lively and enjoyable!” he says. At the Buddha, Jumbos bonded, toasted the group’s first event of the season, and hit the dance floor well past the event’s official end time.
Members of the NYC T4A say, "Cheese!"
Hoq hailed the night as a success and hopes to meet with the group again soon. “It’s great to feel a connection to Tufts,” he says. As to why he volunteers: “Simple. I loved Tufts and want to give back.” Huang feels the same. “I was very active in the Asian American campus community.” For him, participating with T4A continues the experience on a higher level.
